Is growing marijuana permitted where you live? A hydroponic system is your homegrown solution. With marijuana laws changing rapidly, millions of gardeners with an interest in growing Cannabis can finally step out of their curtained basements and raise this unique and ancient plant without worry and in plain view. As with any other plant we grow, you'll find a wide range of strategies for growing marijuana. The variables between approaches are many, including success rates, security, and cost. Indoor, water-based hydroponic systems are the best option for just about any homeowner: they are clean, reliable, highly productive, and can be built for minimal cost. In Homegrown Marijuana you'll find all the information you need to create and operate a hydroponic growing system in your own home. This book is intended for people who live in areas that have legalized growing marijuana, for medical use or otherwise, and who wish to produce it for their own consumption. Using step-by-step instructions and photos, hydroponics and marijuana-growing expert Joshua Sheets explains how to create, build, maintain, and harvest a marijuana garden. He also includes plenty of background information you'll want to know on subjects such as nutrient solutions, propagating plants, selecting varieties, troubleshooting problems, and much more. In reading Homegrown Marijuana you'll see that a hydroponic marijuana garden is not so different from other gardens you've grown—except, of course, that in this garden, the weed is encouraged.
